Jacobite Highlanders would be well received...but I'd like

1. Neolithic Clan Expansionism (Caveman Wars, you know...Neolithic squatting, Mammoth hunting, Sabre tooth tiger ambush, Raquel Welch)
2. Elizabethan Amphibious Raids
3. Rif Wars/Foreign Legion Wars... Two for the price of one ...a PITS extension for Colonial North Africa

All of these would be a commercial success! ;-)

I am interested in cave men (not sure about a range but who nows?). Tried to get an audio book of "The inheritors" by William golding. Will have to read the book I suppose?

a range would be 2 or 3 types of human type (inheritors), wild beasts (big cats, snakes.. bog things) and natural hazards(bogs again, poisonous things, bad luck holes) .  You saw it here first!
Rules would be hunt/ coup de main/ grabbing resources....

Woah! That would be amazing. I can picture the scene already...tribesmen painted in different ways to represent tribes, even hair colour would be sufficient to differentiate sides....this guarantees quick painting! Women, children as cherished prizes who are also able to fight. Then the wild beasts...15mm Peter Pig mammoths...big cats, wolves, simians for hunting down or being hunted and those natural  hazards...great idea and dead easy to scratchbuild.

Gamers could get  their tribes on the table in a week

It's a win-win situation, Martin!

Ooh - this sounds fun!

Could be an "RFCM-lite" / "beer & prtezels" game?

After the Pirates, of course...

Indeed it would be fun. Might have to make sure the men wore pants and the ladies bikinis. Else there might be mass outrage. Of course the "naturelle" might be an attraction too?

Spears, rocks and flint things. Whilst in London I will try to get along to the appropriate display in the natural history (?) museum,

And remember to watch One Million Year BC again for inspiration and guidance on realistic sculpting?

I've always thought a Robin Hood game would be fun!!! No one else does it. More Errol Flynn than Russell Crowe though.

Is their a difference, their both actors. An a good story rarely reflects life!

More to do with the feel of the film. Hollywood fairytale over gritty realism.

You have to admit the aesthetic of the two films is different although telling the same story? No horror from what I remember!

Either cavemen or Robin Hood would be good. Either way though can you please ensure that there is at least the possibility of tribal or faction battles and not just running about stealing resources. I like good battle! This sneaking about is just not the same. To be honest can you imagine a wooly mammoth sneaking anywhere?
